Police in Sussex have launched a crackdown on burglary after an alarming rise in the number of break-ins across the county. In the city of Brighton and Hove alone, more than one thousand homes have been broken into in the last year.
Today police began roadside checks, trying to disrupt the activities of any criminal gangs. Our correspondent Malcolm Shaw was there.
He spoke to Chief Inspector Phil Nicholas and Katy Bourne, the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner.
